Spock is determined to be snuggling me today. At least, he has since I got home from Reffie’s place. Maybe he knows my pain spiked? I dunno. But I’m hurting enough to take something for it.
Today was most excellent, despite the random afternoon spike in pain. I got to see Reffie. We went to breakfast and I had eggs! Well, not just eggs, but I had eggs with my breakfast. They were super delicious.
After breakfast, we ran some errands around town. I picked up two pairs of button closure, burnt orange, high waisted shorts on clearance for less than $25! And yes, I’m remarkably happy about it. I love burnt orange and I love shorts around the house. And my favorite pair of shorts just died due to thigh holes from where my thighs touch/rub together/whisper secrets to each other as I walk. I also found a happy pink shirt on clearance for under five bucks! And the shorts, circling back a moment to those, I bought them in two sizes because the 24s fit a little loose and I may actually be able to go down a size.
In other news, I got to see a classic movie today: The Thin Man. We also watched the sequel directly after it, After the Thin Man. Both movies are circa the 1930s, which means they’re coming up on 90 years old!
I also have a few of the songs from Disney’s newest adventure in animation, Encanto, stuck in my head. It’s like a jumble of snippets of songs. Quite vexing , really.
I got the “Little Inklings Design” 2022 Planner from Chelé as a Yule gift this year and have been putting its list-making abilities to good use. There is, among others, an alphabet challenge and a so-called #ReadingRainbowChallenge. That one is where you pick a book based on the color of the book jacket/cover.
I’ll be, hopefully, diving into 2022’s books here shortly.
Anyway. Brain gremlins are loud. Even though I’m 600 experience points into the monthly Duolingo challenge and it’s only the second of January. I feel… like a failure? Like I’m doing something wrong. I mean, I’m sure I am in some respect, but I’m just feeling wrong-footed.
I’m going to try and get some sleep. Even if I don’t have work tomorrow, I would like to be well-rested enough to be productive.
Take your meds, folks!
